PM advises Khanh Hoa to tap potential in multiple sectors

KHANH HOA (VNS)— Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung told the central coastal province of Khanh Hoa to focus on socio-economic development, especially in tourism, services and seaports.

"Khanh Hoa should continue paying attention to reducing poverty, especially in remote and mountainous areas, in combination with building new-style rural areas, supporting production and improving the local people's material and spiritual lives," he said while meeting with the province's leaders in Nha Trang city yesterday as part of a working visit to the locality.

He also urged the province to invest more in infrastructure development, health care, culture and education while removing difficulties for businesses and accelerating administrative reforms.

Hailing the socio-economic development achievements the local authorities and people had already made, Dung also expressed his wish that Khanh Hoa would fix shortcomings such as unsustainable socio-economic development and slow administrative reform so as to become an industrialised province in the near future.

The province recorded GDP growth of 6.6 per cent and its industrial production index increased 7.1 per cent in the first quarter of this year. — VNS
